Ricky Martin on being closeted at the peak of his success

Ricky opens up about his experiences in a new interview with PROUD RADIO on Apple Music. “In 1999, the world was giving me back the hours that I had put into music, the hours that I had put into this career,” the 48-year-old explains.

“I could high five God, but I wasn’t living to the fullest,” the superstar continues. “I was sad. I was depressed. I would walk on stage to perform because that was the only way I could balance my emotion is to snap out of this heavy sadness that I was moving in. And then actually there came a moment that I said, we need to stop. We need to stop the tour… I said, ‘I can’t. I can’t do this. I need to go home. I need silence. I need to cry. I need to be angry. I need to forgive myself for allowing myself to reach this level.'” 

“I took some time and I took a sabbatical,” Ricky reveals. “I put things in order and still I was not ready to come out, but I was open with everyone around me, but I just didn’t have the strength to make it public. And then I started writing my book… I was fighting as I was writing my book between saying, ‘Am I gay? Am I bisexual? And either it’s okay, just go within and do not lie to yourself.’ And then I said, ‘Rick, you are [a] very fortunate, homosexual, man. You are gay.’ And I wrote it and I pressed send, and then I cried like crazy.”

There are a lot of stories about how predatory he was back then too. We all have our own journey, but his is not all that innocent. :triggered::triggered::triggered:

If it’s still difficult for some people now, imagine then! It was a different era. There were not Twitter stans or Instagram accounts to defend anyone 

A reverse Sneaky-Oliverian expedition

Dancers and models cornered at shoots. "Don't you know who I am" type [email protected]#. Parties and escorts at his house in south beach. Ricky had LOTS of fun back in the day. I have no respect for someone who literally waited decades, until he had a blip of a career left, to come out. Coward.

I really try to be respectful on here when disagreeing  but please shut up . You have no say in the manner , time or place someone chooses to come out .  And stop circulating rumors that were never confirmed . :bear:

Are there receipts for these claims?

Right. Exactly. Thats why he was "closeted" for as many years as he was. And part and parcel what his "defenders" said before he did come out. So sis, don't get cute with it. It's not it.

These are pretty tame claims. Are there any receipts that can back up all of this?

You're right. I take it all back. Ricky so brave. An example for the rest of us. :applause::applause::applause::applause:

I now see I didn't word my point like I wanted. I just edited my post but never mind. I guess it's easier to jump with the irony than to answer a question...

What's wrong with hiring escorts or having parties? Or having lots of fun? :haroon:

Cornering/pressuring ppl is definitely ****ed up. Is there any record of that?
